Naaz (21): ‘Ik hoop dat Naaz over tien jaar verliefd is’ – Toekomstdromers


Maybe I should just keep on living in my own world… …and keep everything a dream. Maybe my dreams shouldn’t come true,
because that would keep it enjoyable. My biggest dream would be that I… …would be able to fill big concert halls… …across Europe… …or in the U.S.A, or whatever, just somewhere. Because I just want to be able to dance on stage,
which means I’ll need a bigger stage. Hi, I’m Naaz, I’m an artist.
I love writing, I love producing, I love singing. I love all of that, I just love to create things. Naaz as a person and Naaz as an artist are
exactly the same. There’s literally no difference. For me that’s very important,
I wanna have the feeling that… …if I can make an impact on someone’s life,
then at least I’m honest to them… …and I’m not some kind of version of myself
that’s unreachable. My family used to tell: ‘Don’t talk about your feelings, because this world is tough, and otherwise people will think you’re weak’ That was kind of the mentality. And that’s really connected to TAPED, which is why TAPED was the first song I released after the EP. Because the meaning of TAPED is to
‘untape’ yourself. Scream out your feelings,
who cares if people think it’s annoying? I often have the feeling that if you listen to my music,
most likely you won’t be… …the happiest person *laughs*. I want to give people the feeling that
there is a place where they belong. I often feel as if many bad things in the world happen
because people have so much ego… …and want so much power. Which shouldn’t have to matter, in my opinion. I never want to be the type of artist that only looks at the beautiful aspects of the world… …because it’s just as important to try and move
the less beautiful aspects to the beautiful side. My parents have told me that I’ve been singing
ever since I could talk… …and that I always sung about everything I saw,
and everything I was doing. And when I was around six, everybody thought
I talked way too much… …and that I was way too energetic,
and then I started writing little books. And then I became lazy,
I didn’t wanna write all these books anymore… …so these books changed into poems. So when I read out my poems,
it sounded as if I was singing… And then I thought: ‘Holy shit,
I’m actually creating music right now’. I think I was around 7 or 8 by then,
and then it became my biggest mission to… …become the best possible artist within my own world. I hope that Naaz will be very in love in 10 years… …and that she owns a dog, and maybe a cat as well,
and a hamster, and birds, and many more animals. I hope I’ll be happy.
I hope I’ll have found my place in life. But I still don’t know if I want to be really famous,
because every time it comes close… …I want to run away again. I just hope that one day I’ll be able to… …focus solely on creating music,
without having to concede at all. There’s been this huge revolution
within my family. Throughout the years,
ever since I was 16, and now I’m 21… …very slowly they started
working towards accepting… …’Okay, this is it, this is what she’s going to do,
and there’s nothing else’. The thought that I would have to become a women
that would just have to marry to somebody… …which had to be from my culture, with a very high degree because it needs to be honorable… …living this life I don’t like,
I’m way too stubborn for that. Lately, I’ve been wanting to share this… …mainly whenever I meet other Kurdish people,
or people with Middle-Eastern or conservative parents… …that I’m thinking: Hey, everyone told me this would never change, this is how it it’s going to be forever… But it did. Even my parents, being in their 50s and 60s,
have been able to change their lives… …and change the way they look at the world. And that’s so inspiring, that sometimes
I look at my parents and think: Maybe I should be a little more like you guys,
and be willing to change a little bit more. I’m really occupied by the future, but that’s mostly
because I’m a very fear-driven person… …and I’m always scared to lose
everybody and everything. Which is because there was a time… …that if I didn’t became very successful real quickly,
I had to go back to school… So for me, for a long time it was like: ‘Everything needs to happen right now, and if it doesn’t happen right now I’m gonna lose it all… …and I’ll have to go back to this life
that I didn’t enjoy’. But that’s not my present, I’m living like I want right now. But still I’m like, I want this so bad. And by ‘this’ I mean I want to be able to
make music forever… …without fear.
